Band: Tea Party
Song: The Messanger
Tabbed by Deren (deren_s@hotmail.com)
 
NOTES: This is a GREAT song from the Tea Party! 
TUNNING: The Tea Party has had some experiance in some
wierd tunnings. This song is in double drop D. Tune your
low and high E strings down to D. To tune down your low E,
tune it on the 7th fret, to tune your high E hit the harmonic on the 
12th fret of the 4th string (D) and tune the high E to match that pitch.
 
CHORDS USED: (low to high)
 
Bm: x24430
F#: 444x00
G: 555x00
A: 777x00
D: 000xxx
 
NOTE: to get the right sound, bar the F#, G and A chords with your middle finger
in an kind of "S" like position as to mute out the G string and leave the bottom two
strings (B and D) to ring out.
 
INTRO:
 
Bm F# G A
 
on the third time through, guitar 2 picks the chords like this:
     Bm            F#               G                       A
d-----------0----------------0---------------------0----------------------0--------
b-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
g---------------4-------------------------------------------------------------------
d----  4------------------------4-----------------------5------------------------7
a--2-------------------4---------------------5-----------------------7---------------
D------------------4---------------------5-----------------------7----------------------
 
VERSE RIFT:
 
Bm  F#    G      A                   Bm  F#   G    A
Got a letter from a messanger, I read it when it came.
Bm   F#      G                   A     Bm    F#      G       A
It said that you where woulded, you where bound and chained.
 
CHORUS RIFT:
 
D                        G                    A    D                   G        A
You where loved, you where handled. You where poisoned, you where pained.
 
BACK TO VERSE RIFT:
 
Oh no, you where naked you where shammed.
 
VERSE 2: (same verse rift)
 
You could almost touch Heaven, right there in front of you. 
If a teacher sent away on us, And there so much work to do.
 
CHORUS RIFT:
 
Oh a door that closes tightly, is a door I cant swing wide.
 
VERSE RIFT:
 
Oh nooo Oh nooo, im not expecting to collide.
 
BRIDGE:
 
G      A       G                    A        G       A    G              A
For a minute I let my gaurde down, not afraid to be found out.
G   A     G         A    G      A       G        
Completely forgoten, what our fears where all about.
 
Back to VERSE RIFT:
 
Oh no dear, there's no need to be without...
 
VERSE 3: (same verse rift)
 
If there's a chance I would take it, this desire I cant kill.
 
Take my heart please dont break it, I will crawl to you for help.
 
CHORUS RIFT:
 
I am frightened, but I am comming. Please baby, please lay still.
 
Back to VERSE RIFT:
 
oh no, oh no, I'm not comming for the kill.  X4

Dude, learn to spell. Woulded? Tunning? Not a bad tab though, it's hard to find good Tea Party Tabs.

I agree, the spelling in the lyrics is absolutely atrocious... "gaurded", "forgoten", "comming", "where" instead of "were"... it goes on and on.
